For a really good mechanic you might have to travel a little, my guess would be Dave Wesseldyke (sp?) near Grand Rapids. PM Crazyhorse he will let you know how to get in touch with him. People come from all over to have him work on their engines.

Thanks for the response. At this point I dont need any major engine work done, just a few odds and ends taken care of. Im having some doubts about my local guy, so just wondering if there is someone local for the odds and ends. I will keep that in mind if I need anything major done though. I wont use the guy Ive been going to for anything major again.

DK..The only guys I would recommend in the TC area is John [email protected] John's Marine Service or Torch River Marine. Torch River did my valve springs on my 500's last summer. No problems to date. Good Luck!

Try Bear Cove Marina on Wallon Lake near Petoskey. Very high quality service. They are a Cobalt dealer who works on a lot of high performance. They rebuilt the upper ends on my 500's a year ago and brought them back to life. No one other than them will ever touch my boat. Their number is 231-347-1994, talk with Wayne.

Thanks for the info. I was talking with another guy a couple weeks ago, and he had nothing but good things to say about them also. I might try them also.
